"War Eternal" as written by and Michael Amott Nicholas Cordle....
Friend or foe there's no way to know
In the battlefield of life its kill or be killed.
So many times its a matter of degrees
From being up on your luck to down on your knees.

Its a hellish inferno
This is war eternal.

They try to change you, crush and break you.

Try to tell you what to do
They love to have control of you
Back against the wall
In danger of losing it all
Search deep inside
Remember who you are.

It's time like these when lines are drawn
Which side of the fence you are standing on?
There will come a day not so far away
When the hunter becomes the prey (and you will pay).

Its a hellish inferno
This is war eternal.

They try to change you, crush and break you.

Try to tell you what to do
They love to have control of you
Back against the wall
In danger of losing it all
Search deep inside
Remember who you are.

This is fucking war!

They try to change you, crush and break you.

Try to tell you what to do
They love to have control of you
Back against the wall
In danger of losing it all
Search deep inside
Remember who you are.

    General CommentThis is a great song! I love all the melodic breaks. I think this song is about the constant conflict that is life. Individuals struggle against individuals, groups of people struggle with another, countries fight other countries. Animals struggle with each other, with people, with environmental degradation. Even within families, there are struggles to be heard, and struggles for love, appreciation and respect. One must be prepared for conflict at all turns.

    The fight to control and to not be controlled is evident at all levels of life, and it is unrelenting. Even the laws of thermodynamics suggest that one must constantly do battle in order to maintain one's integrity.

    I think this song captures this beautifully, from the grinding verses to the sparks of melodic beauty in the chorus and breaks. There are always pockets of victory and beauty strewn amongst the conflict. Those moments are to be savored, especially because they are fleeting.
